About ratings: Please rate this file how you actually feel about it. It is not my creation and I will not be offended by a low rating.  The idea here is to amass enough realistic ratings that they will mean something to other peeps considering the file. Note that typically it's considered a faux pas to rate one's own upload. However, since these are not my own creations I will also be rating them as I see fit.

I believe this is a pretty good creation. I give it 4 of 5 since it could be even better.

5/5 for 100% pure genius of not putting a drawbridge facing the moat.  What good is a moat if it is something that can be lowered to allow a gift-horse?  The front of the castle is open and clear, let all contenders, pretenders, posers and wannabes, make their play in the plain of day, else pack away under the rock from whence came.  Truly excellent work.

That's a quite interesting building, kudos for retrieving it. It would be nice if it could be worked over, textures-wise, for instance (and lotting, of course). Having some wear on the stones and roofs, give some depth to the walls' relief (the towers' tops !.), as the whole thing lools more like a drawing than a (false:-)) 3D object...You, know, that kind of thing ?

      This one of my buildings I did back on SimCity 3000 UK edition.
      This Skyscraper is futuristic and shiny.

      Works well as a replacement building, I used it to replace UK buildings and buildings like Federal Building.

    • I haven't compared this to the real-life version, so I cannot comment on how faitffully you recreated it, but since I have no particular connection to that building anyway, this aspect doesn't matter to me personally. What matters more to me is that this looks like a great BAT of a tower that is both rather generic and can pop up two or three times in a big city's skyline without standing out too obviously (provided you have enough other skyscrapers, with some iconic buildings to draw most of the attention) and also pretty interesting once you zoom in and take a closer look. That base makes it more than just your average black/brown/beige/grey box with window strips. As such, it can also look great when placed in a mid-rise environment. Thank you very, very much for keeping the lot editable, too! This offers great opportunities for adaptation to different playing styles and preferences. A day with a Diego Del Llano upload is always a good day in STEX terms.
    • Boom! Another great HT here! Hope Mr Tsvirkunov will open a new factory soon in my cities! Thanks for sharing your stuff!
    • Nice idea. Should anyone have preferences or favourite buildings they recall, it would certainly help narrow down the total. Especially with the filter list on the Wayback, the accompanying preview images are there at least to give some visual indication for anyone searching. If there really are 10,000 buildings, I suppose it's not even worth uploading 10% of them given the likely inconsistencies with quality.
    • It may be worth setting up some kind of "I would like ..." topic .... people can go thru the old exchange and point out to Cori the ones that should be retrieved ... it should end up a more manageable list
    • That could be arranged. But since these are legacy files, I don't think it matters too much either way since credit would be given. If Cori would like to continue uploading these (as intended following Dirk's approval), it may be nice for her to receive the occasional Rep as a by-product reward for retrieving, packaging and uploading them here. With hundreds if not thousands of them, it'd require a mammoth effort after all. (Should the quality of content resemble anything to the old SC4 EA exchange, I'm guessing it's not worth restoring all of them.)
